You cannot use quite a few characters in a URL. See here (http://www.blooberry.com/indexdot/html/topics/urlencoding.htm).

You need to encode your URL. There is an obvious method of NSString. I'll leave it to you to open the documentation and find it.

I m aware that we can't use few characters in URL,so i m sending encoded URlL only by converting string url into URL by method [NSURL URLWithString:sender]

then also i m not able to download mp3 file.
if in case i send path for any other type of file i can easily download it my same method.

Does your NSError report any issues?
